Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at CareerGuide.com!

To be an Astronomer, to be precise, to be an Astrophysicist, command and expertise on Maths (Applied as well as Core) is very necessary.

To find out whether you have the right interest and aptitude to be an Astronomer, it is best to get yourself assessed through a psychometric test.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.
You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar

Hi There,

Interesting field of study.

To know whether you have the right interest in the said field, firstly do a self introspection:

If yes, then Interest is determined.

For knowing the right Aptitude, you need to undergo an Aptitude tests, which is available at CareerGuide.com too.

Apart from the interests and Aptitude, you need to be good with Math and Physics and need to be very much Research oriented and a Risk taker.

Hope this helps
Wish you good luck....
